Employment outcomes and policies in Sweden during recent decades

Anders Forslund ()

No 2019:15, Working Paper Series from IFAU - Institute for Evaluation of Labour Market and Education Policy

Abstract: The Swedish employment rate is high in an international comparison and has been rising during recent decades. This pattern is especially pronounced among the elderly and women and reflects labour supply behaviour in these groups. The policy survey in this report suggests that the main drivers of the high and rising Swedish employment rates can be found in policies for early retirement, old-age pensions and taxes and benefits.
